"Neither chemistry nor physics have ever been strong points for me, so sometimes I need these things explained at a very basic level. :)"

Elizabath, it's very simple. When atoms get collided each other, it's get broken in to pieces and energy is releasing through these process.

"thanks for the comment but I'm not sure I totally understand. How would this make them even longer lasting? Can you explain a bit?"

Elizabeth, in both cases atoms are moving and collide to release energy. The same principle of Nuclear reactor.

"I think this self-healing effort is a good one as well, though, because it will help these batteries last longer in general so they don't have to be replaced."

Elizabeth, if batteries having self healing with fission or fusion technology, then it can be a long last one; otherwise one day it will get drained.

That's a really good point, Mydesign. I think this self-healing effort is a good one as well, though, because it will help these batteries last longer in general so they don't have to be replaced. Some people have argued that it's not often long-lasting batteries are replaced but I beg to differ. But you're right, to increase the actual usage time of a battery--ie, how long it holds its charge--is probably an even more important aspect of batteries to be working on.

"The other day I saw a video on these self healing materials, and I was amazed by this invention. Certainly it can find numerous applications in the engineering world specially in the polymer industry."

Taimoor, what's the specialty in polymer industry?

"In this fast moving world manufacturers need to constantly look for product developments through research and development. "

Shehan, idea is good but all depends up on business and ROI. In current fluxuating market, none of the companies, including giant MNc's don't want to make too much investment for R&D
